Gorilla and the Maidens

Emil and dancer

The image above is Emil up to his Beauty and Beast hijinx with a lady of unknown origin but I figured a photo reference would help you appreciate the several newspaper items below. Emil Van Horn spent a good deal of his career based out of Chicago and I often wonder what might have drawn him to the Windy City. Emil appeared under the stage name Tomba for this run, teamed up with Tambo, a snake dancer and his dance mate the Hindu Ape Goddess, Tieda. Triple t's are catchy!
